the kilocalorie, kilogram calorie or large calorie. A unit of energy 1,000 times larger than the normal calorie. It is equivalent to approximately 4.2 kilojoules
a non-SI unit of energy, equivalent to approximately 4.2 joules. This unit was widely used in chemistry and physics, being the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1°C

A unit of heat originally defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water through 1° C (the gram-calorie or small calorie)
currently the most common unit for measuring heat and soon to be replaced by joules (J) The calorie is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one cubic centimeter of water one degree Celsius (formerly called centigrade) The calorie is from the Latin word "calor" meaning "heat " It is equivalent to 4 185 joules) It is important not to confuse the word calorie (small c) with Calorie (capital C) A Calorie (or kilocalorie) describes the available energy in food It is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1,000 grams (Kilogram) of water by 1 degree Celsius Physicist Paul Hewitt put it this way: "To the weight watcher, the peanut contains 10 Calories To the physicist, it releases 10,000 calories (or 41,850 joules) of energy when burned or digested " [return to top]

Calories are units used to measure the energy value of food. People who are on diets try to eat food that does not contain many calories. A glass of wine does have quite a lot of calories. calorie controlled diets. see also -calorie. Unit of energy or heat. Various precise definitions are used for different purposes (physical chemistry measurements, engineering steam tables, and thermochemistry), but in all cases the calorie is about 4.2 joules, the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 g of water by 1 °C (1.8 °F) at normal atmospheric pressure. The calorie used by dietitians and food scientists and found on food labels is actually the kilocalorie (also called Calorie and abbreviated kcal or Cal), or 1,000 calories. It is a measure of the amount of heat energy or metabolic energy contained in the chemical bonds (see bonding) of a food
